Feds, NY Meet Over ‘I Love NY’ Signs But No Agreement

ALBANY (AP) -

A meeting between state and federal officials regarding “I Love NY” highway signs ended with no resolution to the dispute.

Federal Highway Administrator Gregory Nadeau met with state Transportation Commissioner Matthew Driscoll in Washington to discuss New York’s refusal to take down the 514 tourism signs. Both parties opted to create a “working group” that will examine the issue.

Federal officials say the signs don’t comply with federal regulations. They also asked the state to cease all over-the-counter sales at its new rest stop on the Long Island Expressway, saying only vending machines are allowed.
